Rogue (FAKE) Virus Scanners


Fix it or Kick it - Computer Help/Entertainment ©

I was working on a computer last night removing another Rogue Anti-virus program that installs on your Computer as a result of a popup telling you that your computer has been infected. These Rogue programs trick you into scanning with their fake scanner and installs a virus to your harddrive. When I went to start the computer the desktop background loaded but no desktop icons did. I had to hit ctrl+alt+del to bring up task manager. In this process I had to click the New task button and type in Desktop for it to finish loading the desktop. Once this loaded I seen all the popups on the infected computer giving me the file names of the virus.

Fake Program Names.
1. Anti-Malware Scanner
2. Coreguard
3. Control Center
4. Security System

The files involved were.
1. Shrpubw.exe
2. wscsvc32.exe

The virus names were.
1. Rootkit.Win32.Agent.pp
2. Networm.Win32.Mytob.T
3. Virus.Win32.hala.A
